Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., and Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., reintroduced bills against the abuse or misuse of prescription drugs. Legislation would bolster funding for drug monitoring programs, establish a uniform reporting system for deaths tied to painkillers and promote patient and physician education. The bills would require health care professionals to meet new training standards for licenses to prescribe such treatments.
